Question: Have you heard of Kepler-22b?
It's like second earth. Can you give me more info about it. And is it life on that planet? It really is real Google or Yahoo search it.
I'm afraid Harley above is correct... it *may* not even exist, but... it probably does. They'll need to research the available data more, and hopefully the next-generation of planet-detection scopes will be able to gleen more information.
At this stage, it's impossible to determine if there's life on the planet, (if it does turn out to exist), but there are a number of ideas of space telescopes that might tell us if there's life on a distant planet.
it hasn't been "discovered" and they can't tell ANYTHING about it, most of what you read is guesswork, the star it supposedly orbits goes a tiny bit dimmer every so often , the genius astronomers have decided that this must mean a planet is passing across the face of the star, they can't see any details of the star - it is just a point of light and certainly cannot see or detect a planet
Do a Google search on "Science News>" I've been a subscriber to that ans Astronomy magazine for 37 years
>> It's like second earth.
I've heard enough about it and the search for extrasolar planets to know that this is at best a highly premature conclusion. It orbits in a band which MIGHT support liquid water. It's also notably larger (over twice the diameter) than Earth. As of yet its surface composition and density are unknown, as is the composition of its atmosphere. Its orbital eccentricity is also a mystery. There certainly isn't enough data to suggest whether or not it actually supports life.
It is NOT known to be anything close to a "second earth."
